Aline is a multidisciplinary designer from Brazil with a preference for working in cross-disciplinary teams. Her work has been exhibited in a wide range of venues across Europe and her career encompasses participation in a selection of prestigious residencies in Germany and France. Having graduated with a BA in Fashion Design from the State University of Londrina in Brazil and an MFA in Media Arts and Design from Bauhaus University in Germany, she has specialised in the integration of smart digital technology into fashion and explored the notion of ‘interactive costumes’. Aline has most recently completed a collaborative residency programme at thecamp in Aix en Provence where she has worked on two distinct projects: an artistic installation questioning the data made available through social media platforms; and another looking to reunite cultures and communities in the context of the present-day refugee crisis through cleverly designed toolkits and workshops.

The project “Articulando” 2008, is a series of convertible wearables made of leftover textiles from a High Fashion Atelier in Londrina, Brazil. In the video, it is explained (in portuguese) how was the design process and the collection output. In the second part of the video, it is possible to see how to interact with one of the pieces I’ve designed.
